Ultra Microscopes & Cure Rays: Dr. Royal Raymond Rife

Gerry Vassilatos


There is a constant war being waged which most prefer to ignore. Living out our days in the joyous sunshine, we rarely choose to glimpse full-faced into the horrid visage of disease as physicians so often do. Perhaps it is pain, perhaps fear. Despite our wilful ignorance, hideous armadas of pathogens march through all nations unhindered. These insidious enemies wage their continual war against the human condition, with a cruel and merciless deliberation.

Pride and wealth cannot keep these legions away. They are deadly, having no conscience or allegiance. They are the universal enemy of humankind, a relentless foe. It is a wonder that nations have not surrendered their petty personal feuds long enough to recognize the common spectre. Joining our best forces to defeat this dread army long ago would have secured major victories for all of humanity.

It has therefore fallen to the sensitive and impassioned few who seek alone, armed with vision and swords of light. The independent medical crusaders enter the battle alone. Their names are seldom seen in major journals any longer. Their private research forever dangles on gossamer threads of grants and endless bureaucratic labyrinths. Yet, these are the ones, the men and women who make the discoveries from which cures are woven. Real cures.

They often live on shamefully minuscule budgets, preferring to pour out their personal funds into the work. They are the seekers. They are always close on the brink of a possible new development. One never knows when such will come. The important thing is that they are prepared, and wait in prepared chambers for the gracious and providential revelations upon which humanity depends. Theirs is the excitement of the chase. Their quest is “the breakthrough”. They are the ones who fill little lab rooms, closet spaces, which line university hallways. Their intuitive vision has guided them into research alleys, which are too small for the big concerns of profiteering medical agendas. If these researchers are fortunate, they find an impassioned patron. Perhaps the patron is a sensitive one, whose life has been touched with the sting of tragedy. Perhaps a loved one was lost. Perhaps also in the heat of that pain, the recognition came that gold must be transmuted by passion and devotion before it can cure. These quiet ones who go about their work daily, so many devoted hearts, are driven on behalf of all who bear such sorrow over what has been lost.

There was once such a man. His discovery gave eyes to the blind. He perfected a means by which humanity’s enemies could be detected. His microscope could optically sight viruses, and sight them in their active state. And he developed a means by which viruses, any virus, could be eradicated with the flick of a switch. His medical developments won him no reward because his research did not fit the desired agenda.

The Microscope. The Super Microscope. There were predecessors to the prismatic marvel of Dr. R. Raymond Rife, but no equals. Others had designed and used oil immersion lenses, dark-field illuminations, and deep ultraviolet light, each holding part of the secret for optically magnifying infinitesimal objects. But the design, which Dr. Rife developed, outpaced all of these.

It is doubtful whether you have ever heard his name. Reasons for mass forgetfulness run deep. Truths have been kept from you. Only a careful and relentless study of the past will relinquish secrets purposefully and cunningly buried. The information is safely nestled in dust-laden libraries, which few now venture to search. Perhaps you will recognize why his name has been blotted out of the historical records before we reach the end of this amazing biography.

Dr. Rife began as a research pathologist. A medical crusader of the very highest qualifications, his was a heart filled with but one goal: the eradication of disease. Dr. Rife recognized first and foremost that successful medicine relies on vision, on light. What we cannot see we cannot battle. An unseen foe is impossible to destroy. Therefore his first quest was to secure a vastly improved system of microscopy. Once he could see, once all could see, then the pursuit of medical knowledge could again move forward. An armada of equipped seers could assail the foe on every shore. Looking for more light.

Dr. Rife’s study of microscopy detailed every component and premise which tradition had presented to our century. The creation of a super microscope would run counter to every physical law and restriction, which the previous two centuries had accumulated. Academes began again to love the writing of papers. Without the exercise of experiment, however, all these papers were so much tinder.

Dr. Rife wanted to develop super microscopes capable of seeing viruses. His aim was to chart and catalogue them, understanding that these represented a deadly foe, which exceeded bacilli in their destructive assault on humanity. His quest now began. He reduced the fundamental premise by which microscope design had developed, analyzing each separate component and premise.


Optical designers had been adding ever more complex components to the design, which began with Van Leeuwenhoek. Lenses were compounded to lenses, crowns were added to compounds, crowns were added to crowns … the complexity was frightful. Simplifying the problem necessarily led to Rife back to the study of optical geometry and the comprehension of simple ray divergence.

Rife thought on these ancient principles. An ideal magnifying system is a geometric construction of extreme simplicity. Diverging light rays can magnify any object to any magnification. Given a strongly divergent light source and a great enough distance, one can theoretically magnify the indivisible! This is the principle, which underlies projection microscopy. Dr. Rife realized that the projection microscope represented the best and simplest means for magnifying infinitesimal objects. One simply needed to discover a means by which a vanishingly small, brilliant radiant point could project divergent rays to the surface of any material speck. No virus, however indistinct and cunning, could hide from such an optical magnifier.
